Mapping Militarism

Welcome to World BEYOND War’s database of information about current wars, military spending, military “aid,” and peace treaties around the world. Maps, screenshots, and lists created with this research tool may be freely shared with attribution.

There are seven sections linked across the top, most of which contain multiple maps listed down the lefthand side. Each map’s data can be seen in map view or list view.

These maps are built with free software provided by Mapbox, which uses publicly available geographic data sets that do not easily allow altering the shape of the maps or the choices of what counts as a separate nation and what does not. World BEYOND War supports local self-governance everywhere and does not accept any occupations or colonizations.
